Mizuno Wave Rider 20 Running Shoes
Engineered for your fastest run yet. Even on long runs, supreme comfort meets lightweight performance in the Mizuno epic run icon.
Dynamotion Fit uppers will encase each foot in breathable comfort. AIRmesh is used to increase airflow; creating a better, healthier environment for your feet to thrive in. Dynamotion Fit is all about creating a shoe that works with your foot through the design and materials used to create it. As your foot twists, bends, and stretches in each step, the shoe upper moves with you. Flex Eyelets help keep your heel secure by allowing the upper to stretch and contract as needed; reducing in-shoe slippage for a smooth, distraction-free ride. Stretch Mesh eliminates the bunching and pulling that can cause discomfort and even blisters, especially at toe-off. Together, the features of Dynamotion Fit create a shoe that gets out of your way, so you can become the best runner you can be. A premium insock lies atop lightweight midsole to supply an extra, removable, layer of comfort and cushioning. A new U4icX strobel lasting board has been implemented for an even cushier, flexible footbed.
Mizuno’s proprietary concave-convex Cloudwave technology resides in the midsole to provide cushioning and stability. Inspired by nature and sandwiched between the U4ic and U4icX, Cloudwave’s unique shape dissipates impact forces away from the foot for a more smooth, cushioned feel on every step. Manufactured from Pebax Rnew, the Wave’s sustainable construction spares your joints as you strike down onto hard, unforgiving concrete, whilst answering to the environmental awareness of its consumers. Performance isn’t compromised though, you still get: exceptional lightness, spring-back, impact resistance and improved flex fatigue resistance. A U4icX heel wedge features for extra comfort and less heel impact upon landing. The lightweight midsole material delivers stress-free cushioned rides with high rebounds, so heel-strikers get extra protection and energy in every stride. The unique U4ic midsole platform encases the Wave plate to increase the level of comfort and performance provided by the Wave Rider 20, without sacrificing light weight. It is an engineered polymer that is light, responsive and cushioned, and delivers you these properties, kilometre after kilometre, day after day.
Stay cool and dry as you pound the pavements. Mizuno Intercool solves the problem of heat and humidity build-up in a running shoe. It does this by incorporating a full-length ventilation system in the sole of the shoe that removes heat and humidity from the foot through a system of ventilation channels, to keep flagging feet happy on longer distance days. Durability and traction arrive in the form of an X10 outsole. The extremely substantial carbon rubber allows for longer wear in high impact areas and provides more traction at the heel strike. So you can run hard, knowing that your shoes can handle the heat. Finally, Mizuno integrate their Smoothride technology to minimise the rapid acceleration and decelaration of the foot during transition, creating the smoothest ride possible. Smoothride begins working the moment your foot touches the ground; flex Grooves adorn the outsole to promote natural movement from the heel to the forefoot, initiating that rocking-chair motion for fluid, uninhibited strides. Choose the Wave Rider 20, for slick speed and smooth comfort.
